Two days ago, the toilet in the MH clogged up...I put the toilet brush (nearest tool aviailable) down and it cleared....this morning it did it again....I went and got a plunger, and it cleared fairly quickly. Soooo, the question is what is causing the clog...one of he other guys here in the RV park said an air pocket, but I doubt that....ideas????

If your tank is offset from the toilet flange and you do not use enough water to flush the paper thru pipe to tank it will plug. If its a straight pipe into tank take a look with flashlite and make sure the pipe is connected to floor flange, had this happen to me and I saw a half moon of toilet paper when it dropped out of the flange, what a mess.
One other thing your vent pipe for tank could have dropped down into tank but when this happens the flush would usually burp at you.

It's an offset...you must be right...not enough water and it plugs..since I plunged it, the water is running with no obstruction.

I think it works the same as the outhouses ya'll have down there
I think 007 might have been right...not enough water, too much TP...makes for a clog. 1st time we have had that problem. It's always something!!

Bruce,
My personal feeling is that you have an unflaming pile of poo beneath the throne....
Take a hose through the bathroom window and insert it into the chute allowing the bowl valve to hold it in place.. ....Turn water on high and it will begin to break obstruction into itty bitty pieces so that they will flush when you pull the black tank valve.
This will probably be more effective Without the Sani-Con Take my word for it !!! If you really don't trust me, you can close off the rest of the bowl opening with a rag so any backsplash will be at a minumum... Leave the water running until the tank is 3/4 full before pulling the valve and draining tank.. You may want to do this more than once to cleanse thoroughly...
Let us know how it goes !!

SACS...Good suggestion...I will do that also...the good news is that right now, it's working fine after I plunged it. I wonder if a bowl of hot water would do anything????

Teofff...
That will only give you a "steaming" P.O.P.! ...and maybe bring the smell back to life
